Seventh Amendment

The Seventh Amendment of the United States Constitution gives everyone the right to a jury trial in civil matters. ┬áThe Seventh Amendment, in the Bill of Rights, states that, “[I]n suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trail by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.”

This Amendment allows people whose rights are violated to hold the violators of those rights accountable civilly as our system of laws prohibits revenge.
